The Life of Bon: THINGS I THINK

Wednesday, December 12, 2012


Sometimes I think.

Sometimes I don't.

You know how it goes.

You ready for a look at Bon Bon's internal dialogue?  It ain't pretty.  I am warning you.


Why did I ever buy this stupid gym pass?
Please don't see anyone I know.  Please don't see anyone I know.  Please don't see anyone I know.
That dude looks just like my ex boyfriend.  If it is, I am running right out of here.
Do these guys all think I'm a sissy when they see me lifting the 5 pound weights?
That chick has been running on the treadmill for half an hour.  I woudl rather die.
My legs are so white and pasty.
Score!  Jeopardy is on!
What's that smell?


Does it really take that long to count up money?
Why do they make me write me entire address every time I make a deposit?  Do they really need that?
I hope I get a strawberry sucker.
Wow.  My bank account does not have as much money in it as I thought it did.
What's with the little skype session I have to do now to make a deposit
(Okay, this one I need to talk about!  Have you noticed banks started doing this? Where they have a little video and you talk with the person inside the bank and they can see you and you can see them via the camera?  It's awful!  And so weird!)


That's what you get for not studying, suckers.
What's that smell?


If you do not get out of the fast lane so help me I am going to murder you.
Dude!  Will you pay attention?  You almost hit me!
Put your turn signal on for crying out loud.
Do not stop at that yellow light!  Do not stop!
Wow.  Bravo sir.  Bravo.  You managed to jack up two lanes because you don't know where you are going.
Oh I love this song!
The empty light is on again?  Come on!  I just filled up!
If I text at a stop light am I still texting and driving or am I off the hook?


Mince?  What the freak does that mean?
This is supposed to cook for an hour?  Who in their right mind can wait that long for dinner?
Hmmm... this doesn't look like it is supposed to.
Water chestnuts?  Right.  Like I have a can of those on hand.
2 sticks of butter?  That's disgusting.  I am going to die when I eat this.
What's that smell?  Oh, gosh.  It's burning.


Are you kidding me?  You're going to complain about that? So spoiled.
I would love to know how much that dinner cost that they are eating right now.
I'd give my left arm to take a tour of Kim's closet.
Kendall, why are you so pretty.  Not fair.
Kris, you are too old to be doing everything you are doing.
What the heck?  They choose their family vay cay by drawing any destination in the world out of a hat?  That's the exact same way Hubs and I choose our family vacations!  (NOT!)


I don't understand a word you are trying to say to me, buddy.
You can't really think that this cartoon is interesting.  The plot sucks!
You want more candy?  Me too, kid, me too.
I am never going to be ready to have my own kid.
What's that smell?



I wish I would have thought of that idea.
Why do her pictures always look so legit and mine look so white trash?
I wonder how long all those pictures took to edit.
That kid is adorable.
That kid is not adorable.
Why do all bloggers have so much money to spend on clothes/ jewelry/ whatever their hearts desire?
I don't like crafting.  Will they still accept me?
Wow how did she get so many followers so quick?
Another giveaway?  I can't keep up with them all!
There's no way you are really that cute and your house is really that clean.

There you have it, folks.  A look at my mind when doing some of the most mindless of tasks.  YOUR TURN!  When I did this How To post I had commenters post their own how to.  I was amazed at how funny/clever/witty the readers of this blog are.  I could not get enough of the How-tos! 

Now you are going to do your own "Things I think when... "  Leave a comment and the top three will be featured on the blog.  Get to work you baby geniuses, you!

P.S.  If you are liking what I'm thinking then you should definitely follow me via twitter or facebook.  All the Bonnie thoughts you could ever imagine!

P.P.S  Entries are relatively low on this giveaway from yesterday, so if you haven't yet, get your buns in gear!


  1. Things I think when I see pregnant women.
    ~Are you fat or pregnant?
    ~Would it be rude to ask that?
    ~Boy or girl?
    ~She looks like she's about to pop!
    ~Are you supposed to look like that when you're pregnant?
    ~I am NEVER having kids.
    ~They might not be that bad, if they come out cute.
    ~Is that the glow they talk about? Cause she just looks like she's gonna hurl!
    ~Dang, we all know what was going on in their house. Bow-chicka-wow-wow!
    ~Wow...just wow, you're life is over.
    ~Well, it ain't me! Hallelujah!
    ~I hope it comes out cute.
    ~If it doesn't come out cute...I need to think of something nice to say. It's got such cute feet is always a good one!
    ~Holy Smacks! If I ever get preggo, I hope I don't look like that!
    ~Aw, they're adding to the population!
    ~They're other kids are cute. That says something.
    ~Please let that be a girl, it'll have a chance then!

  2. I pretty much agree with all of your Things I think while driving. And I totally text at red lights. I do not equate this with texting while driving. Love you girl, and adored your post on LIY today. Genuis!

  3. Things I think when taking a final exam:

    Your really asking us that?
    We didn't even talk about that?
    Where did you even find that question?
    Oh look it's raining.
    If you wrote these questions yourself then we have a problem.
    Crap I know I know that answer.
    I cant wait to be done.
    Score I got one right...I hope!
    My brain is starting to hurt.
    They are done already?! Im only on question 3!

  4. I am right there with you on the gym thoughts. I don't think I will ever be able to run an entire half hour on the treadmill! :)

  5. So cute! I feel the same way about other bloggers' pictures!

  6. Things I think while crafting:
    -Whew where to start
    -Where is my darn glue gun
    -OUCH stupid glue gun
    -That looks nothing like the tutorial
    -Post to Insagram anyway so my non crafty friends Ooo & Ahh where my blog friends would snicker.
    -I ran out of excitement to do this 64 seconds into starting it.
    -Is Grey's Anatomy on tonight.

    I heart you. Thats all :)

  7. I love this! Such a great post!

    Things I think while shopping at Target:
    I'll just run in for body wash and fruit.
    You don't need Starbucks, you don't need Starbucks.
    You know, I haven't browsed the clothes section in a while. I'll just take a look.
    what? these shirts are only $8 a piece. I can always use more solid v-necks!
    I should really take a look at the curtains. I really need curtains in my house.
    What am I doing here? I don't even know how to hang curtains. Just walk away.
    what did I come in here for again?
    Well, I didn't plan on spending $160 in 30 minutes
    Fine, I'll just get a tall white mocha.

  8. i totally relate to the gym one. has to be the most awkward place in the world.

  9. I think the same exact things when I'm giving my students a test! Especially the "what's that smell?" Ugh, why do teenagers have to smell so bad?!

  10. i loved this post. :)

  11. ohh my gosh, i'm a newer reader and i absolutely love your blog.
    you crack me up!
    i especially loved your
    "Things I Think When I Read Blogs"
    i have so many of those same thoughts...

  12. THIS IS GREAT. :) My fav: "Why do her pictures always look so legit and mine look so white trash?"

  13. ^ @Eve, in ASL culture it's actually rude NOT to ask if you think someone is pregnant! Totally weird.

    I definitely text all the time at stop lights. In my book, if the car isn't moving, I'm not texting and driving. ;)

    I say to myself all the time that "I wish I could have thought of that" when reading blogs too, hahhah. I always feel so lacking in creativity!

  14. haha this is so cute. My fiance and I have season tickets to a hockey team in our town and so...

    My thoughts while at a hockey game:
    -I should've put another layer on.
    -Is she really wearing that? To a hockey game?
    -That cowbell is loud
    -mmm pizza...don't do it
    -my toes are cold
    -I wish I could hear what the players are saying
    -please fight please fight please fight
    -another one? please girl put some clothes on
    -mmm popcorn
    -I wonder if people are watching me people watch...
    -I have to pee
    -my kids wont kick the back of seats like these little brats behind me are
    -I wonder if his mom is going to notice he's kicking my seat't do it
    -ref, you're a freaking idiot
    -enough with the cowbell

  15. Hello! I just came across your blog, and I love it! Your posts are hilarious- and right now i'm teaching english to 7th graders at a middle school, so I can relate to you and your teaching life! I’ve decided to follow you! If you get a minute, I’d love to know what you think of my latest outfit post! While you’re visiting, follow along so we can keep in touch! :)
    xo, elle from Living in Color.

  16. Things I Think on Facebook

    -Aw, yay, one of my sorority sisters is engaged!
    -How cute! My best friend just posted engagement photos!
    -I miss my family in France.
    -OMIGOD WHAT?! My good friend is pregnant already?!
    -Didn't she just get married? I swear she emailed me about birth control and Planned Parenthood and not wanting a baby right away.
    -But she's just so darn cute.
    -But seriously, was this planned?
    -I want a baby.
    -I want a husband.
    -I want a fiancé.
    -Facebook is so depressing.
    -Look at my old adviser's sweet daughters. I hope they all get Ph.D.'s and fight patriarchy like their awesome mother.
    -I miss my friends in France.
    -Wow, Mom, you're just now commenting on my photo album from two weeks ago?
    -Wait, what? She's engaged? But she's such a bitch!
    -Dear Lord, why is my mother on facebook? I can't believe she wrote that as her status update!
    -Hahahahaha, those two reproduced?
    -I'm so mean.
    -Thank God no one hears my inner dialogue.
    -I miss France.

  17. Haha, this made me laugh. :) Thanks!

  18. BAHAHAHA I loved the "my pictures look like white trash" I think we are on the same page with the blogger think and Kardashian think! You are a hoot!

  19. things i think while showering:
    -when was the last time i was in here?
    -why does my body wash always smell so much better in the store than it does in the shower?
    -also, why does my shower always look like a graveyard for old shampoo/conditioner bottles?
    -my shampoo isn't lathering. my hair was super greasy.
    -seriously, when was the last time i was in here?
    -i have to pee.
    -why do i always forget to pee before my shower?
    -someone just came into the bathroom. they're going to kill me.
    -if i open my eyes to see, i will be blinded by shampoo suds.
    -seriously, someone is in the bathroom.
    -maybe i can defend myself with my razor.
    -i need new razor heads. this one is squeaky.
    -what if the person in the bathroom tries to drown me like Harrison Ford does in What Lies Beneath?
    -why did that movie have to ruin showers/baths/Harrison Ford for me?
    -i'm done with my shower, but i'm afraid to turn off the water because Harrison Ford is for real in my bathroom.
    -the water is cold now. and if i'm being honest, i'll take death over a cold shower...

  20. This post...awesome. And I totally feel you on the whole video-drive-thru thing. My husband's credit union has that and I hate it. I'm paranoid they'll see me do something embarrassing. So usually I refuse to use it. ;)

  21. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks that it seems as though bloggers have an endless supply of money! I have no idea how they afford all these shopping trips, craft projects, vacations, etc. What am I missing here??

    Things I think while perusing Instagram:
    - why does this chick always look good?
    - I tried that same outfit on and I look ridiculous.
    - why does it seem like her husband is the perfect human being?
    - oh yay, she just got engaged! When the heck am I gonna get to post my "I'm engaged" pic?!
    - how come I never get flowers from my bf?
    - oh really, another vacation? Do you even work??
    - why isn't my boyfriend as creative as hers?
    - you're a skinny bitch.
    - man, she's doing something ridiculously cool again!
    - I need more friends.

  22. Things I think when looking at blogs:
    - Don't you get hot wearing so many layers?

    Things I think when looking at facebook:
    - Why does no one know what's going on in the world?

    Things I think when at the gym:
    - Do I look funny when I run?

  23. This is fabulous! And I always think the EXACT Same things when I'm reading blogs! That was totes my fav!

    Things I think at Walmart:
    -Why do you have your 1 year old out at 10pm grocery shopping?
    -Did you forget to put on clothes
    when you were leaving the house?
    -Why the hell do you have 26 registers if you only open 2?
    -Why must you always change things around in this place?
    -Why do all of these greeters look like they are about to die?!

    1. Our local Walmart greeter DID just die. He was so sweet too. It was very heartbreaking.

  24. this is HI-LAR-IOUS!

  25. Things I Think at 1am...
    What time is it?
    Why is the baby awake?
    If I pretend I'm dead, maybe she will fall asleep.

    Things I Think at 2am...
    Playing dead didn't work.
    Why is my husband still asleep?
    Why doesn't this baby sleep?
    Does she hate me? Is this some sort of punishment?

  26. I'm laughing out loud over here! I am totally on the same page with EVERYTHING! Especially this "If you do not get out of the fast lane so help me I am going to murder you."

    HAHA! You're the best!!

  27. Things I think every time I walk by our Christmas tree:
    --Angel sure used a lot of tape when he was wrapping my presents.
    --Maybe I should wrap the presents I bought for him one of these days.
    --Nah, I'll just wait till Christmas and give him the presents wrapping in the plastic bags that they came in from the store.
    --I wonder if he listened to my wish list this year.
    --Did he get me a rubber band ball again?
    --I could open them and rewrap them while he's gone.
    --but that would be too much work.
    --Maybe I can sweet talk him into celebrating Christmas when he gets home from work tonight.
    --Probably not.
    --It's worth a try!
    --having presents waiting under the tree is way too stressful for me.

  28. You are hilarious!

    Things I think about when my husband is watching tv:
    - another episode of River Monsters, seriously?
    - did you take out the trash yet?
    - when are you going to fix the light in the garage?
    - why are there rolled up socks all over this room?
    - seriously, they are always catching the same fish on this show!
    - no, you can't have a boat to go searching for monster fish.
    - clearly you have free time help me vacuum.
    - and by help, I mean, you do it all.
    - why can't you read my mind?
    - ugh, MEN!

    xo, Yi-chia

    -Alright, I guess I'll just skip that Coke then, didn't know sugar and caffeine weren't good for you.
    -OMG This fiber cereal tastes like rabbit food
    -Scooby Doo fruit snacks count as "fruit" right?
